The Capitola City Council will consider whether to join in a regional feasibility study of a Community Choice Aggregation program that would allow Santa Cruz County and city governments to band together to produce and purchase electric power for resale to citizens.
According to a staff report, a similar program in Marin County provides power to 80 percent of county residents at a price close to that of PG&E but with a much higher percentage of that power coming from renewable sources.
The council will also consider a number of changes in the city’s zoning. According to the Santa Cruz Sentinel, some of the changes include allowing three-story buildings in Capitola Village.
Another change would allow staff approval of room additions and remodels of homes.
The council meets at 7 p.m. in City Hall, 420 Capitola Avenue.
